Tyler Akin's "Bastia" Hosts Exclusive Preview Dinners in PhillyPhiladelphia, PA—Foodies, get excited! Tyler Akin is the culinary mastermind behind Philadelphia's beloved stock restaurants and the upcoming Bastia. Bastia, set to open later this spring in Fishtown's boutique Anna & Bel hotel, is already causing a stir with its Mediterranean-inspired menu and recent mention in Bon Appetit's list of anticipated openings.

Taste the Mediterranean Before it Lands in Fishtown: Tyler Akin's "Bastia"

Before opening the doors, Akin will host two exclusive preview dinners at Philly's most celebrated restaurants: a.kitchen in Rittenhouse and Laurel in East Passyunk.

What is Bastia?

Partnering with Foyer Project, Tyler Akin brings a slice of the sun-soaked Mediterranean to Philly's Fishtown neighborhood. Bastia will seamlessly transition from a leisurely cafe by day to a vibrant restaurant by night, drawing inspiration from the coastal cuisines of Corsica and Sardinia. Expect thoughtful nods to Sicilian and Croatian flavors grounded in seasonal, mid-Atlantic ingredients. The focus will be on vegetable- and seafood-forward dishes, complemented by low-intervention wines from the region and refreshing spritzes and aperitifs.

The Preview Dinners

  • Bastia @ a.kitchen: Get ready for a family-style feast on Tuesday, May 7th, from 5-9 PM. Highlights priced at $85 per person include amberjack with whipped cannellini and clementine, shaved artichokes with sunchoke gremolata and grana padano, and veal oxtail with olives and oregano.

  • Bastia @ Laurel: Indulge in a five-course tasting experience on Tuesday, May 14th, from 5-9 PM. Priced at $95 per person with an optional $55 beverage pairing, highlights include a tantalizing sea urchin butter tartine with squash blossom and lavender, followed by grilled lobster with legumes and saffron stew.

Both preview dinners offer a unique opportunity to experience Akin's culinary vision before Bastia's official opening. Seating is limited, so be sure to snag your reservations soon for a taste of the sun-drenched Mediterranean in the heart of Philadelphia.
